OUR JUNIOR COACHING PHILOSOPHY
The coaching staff and officials of Juventus FC understand that children participate in football to have fun. If children don’t have fun playing football, they’ll soon pack it in.
We never forget that the game of football is just that – a game. It’s not about how many wins and losses are accumulated. And, it is surely not about how many trophies are collected. It’s not about how many goals we score or concede. It’s all about enjoying the game and, at the same time, learning and developing football and life skills.
Proper football development requires that children play age appropriate activities so they are able to experience, comprehend, and execute the game as it relates to where they are at their own stage of physical and mental development.
It is about playing in different positions so the player learns all the skills necessary to develop in the game.
It’s about receiving equal playing time, so the players are all given equal opportunity to learn.
It’s about learning the techniques of the game through a variety of fun games where players have as much contact with a ball as possible and learn at their own rates.
Junior registration for the 2019 season will be at the Crusaders Sports Club on 24th February 2019 at 9:00am.
Junior coaching staff are constantly working on our development programs, ensuring our training sessions are filled with fun and exciting activities to suit players of all levels and ages. We have excellent, passionate, experienced coaches & are a club based on core family values. Although we believe that our juniors’ primary motivation is to have fun playing the beautiful game, our aim is to ensure that they are able to learn & test their skills, enhanced by the concept of competitive challenge, good team spirit, and sporting conduct on the field.
